In the first ever head-to-head matchup of undefeated teams in the NCAA championship game, University of Connecticut defeated Notre Dame 79-58 to win the NCAA women's basketball championship Tuesday night in Nashville, Tennessee. Shabazz Napier scored a game-high 22 points to lead the Huskies. The victory makes Connecticut the second men's and women's teams in history to sweep their Division I tournaments—joining the 2003-04 UConn teams. It was a pure team effort from start to finish. This is Geno Auriemma's fifth undefeated season and his third in his last six seasons at the helm. Only John Wooden (10-0) has a better record in national championship games than Auriemma (9-0). He's now passed longtime rival Pat Summitt for most national championships for a women's coach in history.
